Hand your kids the world and they will learn more than they ever knew they could. This globe features three activity panels, 19 activities, and hours of audio information to keep your kids learning in a fun and entertaining way.

Road trip loving families won’t be able to get enough of this fact-filled activity book that includes road trip itineraries to show your kids some of the craziest stuff we have in the U.S. If you need a little inspiration, tell one kid to close their eyes and flip through the pages before choosing one. Grab that itinerary and start planning your next trip.
Road trips can get long and boring if you don’t pack the right entertainment. Hand the kids SpotIt! to make the time fly by as they look for clues in the cards and along the road. The cards can even be turned into a game of travel bingo. Don’t forget a few prizes to hand out to the winners.
Who doesn’t love MadLibs? Parents played it when they were kids and now you can take a travel-specific version out on your next adventure. Create hilarious scenarios, and see who can come up with the most creative tale. Just watch what you hand your kids to drink. You don’t want milk squirting out of their noses in the car.
If MadLibs and Bingo don’t do it for you, send the kids on a road trip scavenger hunt. With 54 cards in the box and loads for your kids to find, you can divvy out cards to each kid or hold one up until everyone finds a different object that fits. The possibilities are endless, which is a good thing since you still have three hours left until you get to grandma’s house.

Bonus for parents: if your kid has their own bag, they have to carry it. You don’t have to lug around extra suitcases anymore!
